"Other Woman" in Brinkley Split Speaks

7/18/2006 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The teenage girl who came between Christie Brinkley and her estranged husband, Peter Cook, is talking about about their steamy relationship and how it became sexual.

Diana Bianchi, now 19, told WNYW, the FOX affiliate in New York, that she met the 47-year-old Cook in May 2005 when Bianchi, then 17, was working at a toy store in the Hamptons. Bianchi says Cook offered her a job at his architecture firm. Within a month, she says, things turned sexual.

"He'd make advances verbally towards me first," Bianchi told WNYW's Rosanna Scotto. "It just escalated into something I didn't expect ... I never expected that he would take it to a different level."

Bianchi knew that Cook was married, but says that Cook never made her any promises. "He didn't say he was going to leave her. He just basically left it at he wished things were different. He wished that he was younger or he had met me at a different time ... I never asked him to leave her for me."

At one point during the interview, Bianchi's attorney stepped in, saying that Cook "preyed on her vulnerability, her naïveté, her age, her immaturity."

Bianchi says Cook would leave money for her, even providing a down payment on her car.

Brinkley and Cook have been married for a decade. Bianchi could be a key witness in the couple's divorce case, with a reported $60 million on the line. Bianchi's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says his client has "got a great sexual harassment claim" against Cook.

YES, She knew the girls of this age are very with the times and someone that wants to break into singing knows the score. A judge will know that she is not naive. She had a choice he did not force her and she could say no. What do you think since she left the one job for more money and she was not qualified to be an assisitant and make that kind of pay. She took money for screwing that makes it prostitution in my book. She provided a service and took money for it. She should have said no and found another job not stayed in her job making killer money for over a year. But no she wanted to be a prostitute. She has no grounds and She really should be sorry for trashing things up could she not have thought of the children involved. Of course not I guess it was to hard to try to really work for a living and it was easier doing it on her back so she does not care that she is hurting the real inocents in this story which are Christy's children.

What the hell is going on? Christie would not be the person that she is on looks alone. She is obviously beautiful, however, she reached her level of celebrity through hard work, perserverance and intelligence. Isn't that what our parents taught us? Integrity, self-respect ? Her husband saw that in her and valued it at one point. What happened to those morals and values? When is it ever acceptable to cross the line with a married man? What about the vows of marriage? Cheating is a choice, not an option. Teens of the world, love yourself first,and you won't destroy the families trying to raise our future.

This girl "does not hold a candle to Christie"? ....Please. She's younger, she's hotter, and God knows she's probably a better lay than 52 year old Christie! Admit it, most women on here talking smack about this girl are probably all older women who have also been wronged by their husbands, so just give it a rest. I dated a 53 year old man and he had a longtime gilfriend but obviously, the old girl was not enough for him so he came to me.... Sometimes, the picture perfect life is not enough so you're men will come looking for younger women.

Everyone seems concerned about Him, and Her and Her. What about the Children? They are going to have a broken home now and have to try and understand what it is all about! That is what I think is sad. The older people involved will survive and have to pay for their mistakes but not fair to the Children!

Christie Brinlkey should charge Cook with Chold Molestation if that Bianchi is going to play that she was seduced by an old perv.
Im sorry but she was willing to speard her legs to Cook and shes no child!

Everybody wants their 15 minutes of fame! And this little slut is getting hers now--too bad. "Naive?" Give me a break!! She knew exactly what she was doing! Even when you're young, you know that it is WRONG to have sex with someone else's spouse . . . no ifs, ands, or buts! The only thing good to come of this is that Christie Brinkley has confirmed what she probably always knew . . . that her husband is a genuine PIG and now she can get out. Oh, and by the way, what the hell was he thinking?? Are teenagers--no matter what they look like-- that enticing to older men? Must be . . . because she is definitely nothing to look at. I would even go so far as to say that she's homely!!

In the interview, she says she "regrets" the whole thing. At the same time, she's smiling all through the interview. Now, why don't I believe her?

Well, I've seen a lot of people trashing all three of the individuals involved. The truth is that the complexities of relationships, including those of personal attraction, can be very difficult to sort out when you're in them, and even more so when you're leaving them. And there are obviously great things about all three of these people. I personally choose to support all three of them. There's no doubt they're all suffering in one way or another right now, and probably even going through some tremendous highs and lows, as many of us do. I would give the same respect to anyone else as well. So my best wishes to each of you. Keep your chins and spirits up. GC

Almost ALL of the men, in this world, are WEAK.Women are the BACK BONE of this world. I laugh when they categorize women as a MINORITY!! Some of us women, bring men into this world, love them and care for them. We teach them values and morals. Then , of course, there are the OTHER types of women. They are absent, neglectful and just no good. We all know what type of children they produce. That's not to say there aren't men AND women that vow they will NEVER be like their unfit parent's. We then marry men and again, we care for them and love them. Sadly, there are men that are the same as a tire stuck in the mud and the wheels just keep on spinning; They never grow up. They could be fifty or sixty years old and they are still a CHILD! Children want instant gratification. They don't care who they hurt, just as long as they get what they want, even if they have to murder their families. AND divorce IS the murdering of a family! I taught my four grown children that there is an unwritten rule, in life; You NEVER hurt anyone's heart; That pertains to everything! Christie's soon- to- be -ex is a child and he is WEAK! He is NOT a MAN. Who'd want to be married to him?! Christie should find a gentleman, they are the STRONG men, who come from good families, with MORALS and VALUES!

I dont think this is the first time he has played his wife. I would not be surprise if more girls come forward too. It seems that he had the perfect life, but you dont know what they are going through unless you are in their shoes. I believe he offered the job with the intentions to sleep with her. She knew what she was doing. She had a boyfriend at the time which she played with him. They are two dogs that deserve eachother. They will never find happiness inside, eventhough, they will show it in the outside.

If Christie can walk away with $60 millioin, she deserves every penny. What a classy lady. He never deserved her, not for one minute.

I have absolutely no sympathy for him. He is a lowdown, dirty dog to do what he did to not only his wife but to his entire family. His wife should take him for whatever she can get for t he humiliation he's put her through. AND, of course, this young girl should take him to the cleaners also. Cook is old enough to be Bianchi's father!

Wake up people - if you want to be a ho - - - - dont get married. Sleep around - be a ho, but dont get married & have children - - - - only to drag them thru all this pain & anguish. Be a dog but dont drag others into your STD lifestyle. Yes 18 is young & naive but good golly didnt this girl have any sense or morals? She knew he was married - so she is just as much a ho as the immoral husband.
